COVID-19 Safety For Acupuncture Visits

Patient health and safety continues to be my top priority. The following measures are in place to protect you:

  • COVID-19 prescreens are performed before every visit.
  • No touch temperature checks are performed before every visit.
  • Patients and practitioners wear masks and are screened daily for COVID symptoms.
  • We take every precaution to maintain a disinfected environment by following official OSHA & CDC infection control guidelines. We have further increased our extensive cleaning efforts and routinely disinfect all areas (including treatment rooms, lobbies, door handles, surfaces, and bathrooms).
  • Linens are single use only.
  • We are limiting the number of people in the office at one time.
  • The waiting room is closed for now. Patients are escorted directly to their sanitized treatment table.
  • We continue to closely monitor the guidelines of state and local authorities, and the CDC.

Patients are advised to cancel acupuncture appointments and consult with a primary care physician when experiencing any of the following:

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough 
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Headache
  • Sore throat
  • Had a respiratory illness in the last 14 days
  • New loss of smell or taste
  • Fatigue
  • New muscle or body aches
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • New diarrhea, nausea, vomiting
  • Confirmed COVID-19 or waiting for test results
  • Been in contact with an individual with confirmed or suspected COVID-19 in the past 14 days
  • Travelled out of the country or domestically by plane, bus, or train in the past 14 days

Procedures For Your Visit:

  • Masks are required in health care offices. PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN MASK. Supplies are limited.
  • Please arrive on time for your scheduled appointment.
  • Anyone accompanying you must wait outside the building (indicate if you need assistance)
  • Upon entering the building, please stop in the bathroom and wash your hands for 20 seconds with soap & water.
  • Please do not bring unnecessary items into the office with you (bags, water bottles, iPads, etc.). 
  • Please leave the building directly when your session is completed.

My normal cancellation policy will not apply and you will not be charged a fee when you are cancelling for COVID-19 related reasons.
